WIND TURBINE INSTALLATION
Client: High Wind – Boom Lock
High Wind develops new installation techniques to install offshore wind turbines. They have created the Boom Lock system – a smart tool that allows offshore cranes to install wind turbine components at high wind speeds.
Controllab developed a simulation model of the crane, Boom Lock and load. Simulations investigated the loads under various weather conditions – and were also used to develop and test the control system. The control system runs the Boom Lock winches and guiding lines, so the load is transported safe and stable throughout the lift.
